Sermon Overview

Scripture Passage: Genesis 2:18-25

Those who are married have the potential for great wealth in what truly matters. We can have a millionaire marriage when we understand the value God has placed on the family.

In Genesis 2:18-25, we learn the basis for a wonderful marriage.

“And the Lord God said, ‘It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him’” (Genesis 2:18).

First, we must remember that marriage is made in Heaven. God designed marriage for a distinct purpose.

There is no deeper companionship than a husband and wife. In their fellowship, they are designed to strengthen each other and cooperate in the world. They are meant to complete each other, to reflect the relationship between Jesus Christ and the Church.

God gave us marriage to replenish the Earth and continue the human race. Our homes are meant to be the center of God’s glory.

There is a heavenly design for our human differences.

Men and women are different in their nature, their personalities, and priorities. God made male and female different so that they may become one in marriage. (See Genesis 2:24.)

But marriage has been marred by Hell.

Satan’s plan for the family is to deny the authority of God, debase man, and deny morals. If he can destroy the family, he can dominate the world. When Adam and Eve brought sin into the world in Genesis 3, Satan’s war against the family began.

But marriage is always marked by hope.

Genesis 3:15 says, “...He shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel.” This verse was a prophecy of Jesus coming and crushing the head of the enemy. No matter our circumstances, there is always hope because the grace of God covers all of our sins.

Adrian Rogers reminds us, “Jesus performed his first miracle at a wedding – He turned water into wine. I tell you that Jesus can turn the water of your sorrow into the wine of joy.”

Apply it to your life

Adrian Rogers says, “The Jesus that turned water into wine will turn arguments, strife, and heartache into peace, purpose, and joy.”
